This is possibly my favorite Jean-Antoine Watteau painting. The costume of The Pierrot is impeccably painted. His face is amazing. The composition with the figures and donkey gathered around the bottom is just right.

Love this! A college student in Oklahoma named Amelia transcribed and
recorded the music that Bosch painted on the butt of a sinner guy in hell
(from The Garden of Earthly Delights).

A few people have told me over the years that my painting style sort of looks like Bosch and
I am getting a huge kick out of this butt story. Plus, it is one of my favorite paintings ever in the history of art.
To this day, Bosch's imaginative art still charms the pants off people. Bosch was so modern and funny. The Art of Amy Crehore
